I lost my foot in a car accident in April of 2021. Dr. Behboudi and Shawn shaved my foot! I still have a long way to go but because of them, I have my foot! I would highly recommend him and his staff. He and Shawn care about you and do what is best. Just remember, they can only do what they can do. If you do your part too, your care will be a success!

Behboudi was very nice and welcoming! We took our 1 year old to see him and he was always calm, gentle, and patient with our little one. He never rushed us and always sounded like he wanted to be there helping us. We loved his kindness and all the time he spent on us! Great doctor!
